Dreamy florals, a stunning gown and smiles that light up a room! The Ausec wedding was absolute perfection, well, except for the weather. When Laura and I met at The Farmhouse for her bridal portraits (which are simply gorgeous by the way), it was a cold, damp and rainy day. We couldn’t take photos in […]

When my partner in crime, Aly Hester (a fellow Houston wedding photographer), and I decided we wanted to put together a branding shoot for our own websites and for Elevate and Educate, we knew The Grand Texana was the perfect place.
